Lucknow: A 22-year-old married man committed suicide by immolating himself in front of house of a woman he was in love in Bareilly district of Uttar Pradesh.
The incident was reported from Jokhanpur village under Baheri tehsil on Monday. Akash (22) poured kerosene on himself outside a woman’s house on Monday and set himself on fire when the woman he loved refused to meet him.
He was rushed to the hospital where he succumbed to severe burn injuries on Wednesday. Akash was already married. He had developed a liking for the woman and was insisting her to marry him. But the woman refused and reprimanded him since he was already married.
“Failed love affair seems to be the motive behind the deceased taking such an extreme step. We have lodged a case and investigation is on,” said the SP Rohit Singh Sajwan.
